Brandy, En Vogue, Arrested Development
As a multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning R&B/pop singer, songwriter and actress, Brandy has come roaring back with a fearless and inspired attitude. She became one of the most successful multi-media stars of the ’90s. Since emerging with her 3-time platinum self-titled debut album in 1994 with hits “Baby” and “I Wanna Be Down,” this trail-blazing pioneer has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide and is ranked one of the best-selling female artists in American music history by the RIAA, having sold over 11 million albums in the United States. Rounding out the ’90s with the Never Say Never album, Brandy dominated the airwaves once again with the Monica duet “The Boy is Mine” and ballad “Have You Ever.”
Timeless! That’s what comes to mind the moment you hear the resonant voices of En Vogue. With current members Cindy Herron-Braggs, Terry Ellis and Rhona Bennett, En Vogue is one of the top 5 highest selling American female music groups in history and has sold over 20 million albums to date. Their effortless transition into the digital age, complemented by their effortless chic, has garnered the group over 30 million streams and 26 million+ YouTube views on their Top 6 hit singles alone; smashes such as “Hold On,” “Free Your Mind,” “Never Gonna Get It,” “Giving Him Something He Can Feel,” “Don’t Let Go” and “Whatta Man (feat. Salt N Pepa).”
The multi-platinum, Grammy Award Winning group Arrested Development delivers an onstage energy to thirsty audiences looking to quench their soul! It’s been more than twenty years since a new group called Arrested Development slammed the gangsta dominated world of hip hop with defiant lyrics of hope. Apparently the world was ready for the change as AD became the first ever hip-hop artist to receive the “best new artist” Grammy (a distinction it still maintains today in that category). In addition, the group also received a Grammy award for “best rap single” for their anthemic prayer-like hit song Tennessee. The song has gone on to be named as one of the 500 Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and in the top 100 Greatest Songs of the 90’s by VH1.
